Avast 4 SBS eidtion licence
« on: January 12, 2006, 03:07:25 AM »
I have a demo version of the SBS edtion running successfully now on the company server.
I wish to purchase a licence under the sbs edtion, but I am concerned that my system properties does not show "Microsoft Windows Server 2000 for Small Business Server..."
My system shows "Microsoft Windows 2000"
The side banner, from the start menu shows "Windows 2000 server"
The small business management consoles are installed and functional.

I installed the server, and have the microsft box in front of me with the disks, and it is definately a 2000 sbs windows edition.

The fact that the Avast sbs edtion software is successfully running, is this enough to know the purchased licence will work?
Is there some other check i can do, to know, that when I purcahse a licence, all will be ok?

Yes, please check the registry key HKLM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions, value ProductSuite. What does it say?

Thanks Vlk

I'm pretty sure that there's no reason why it shouldn't work. The version you should buy is "avast! 4 Small Business Server Edition".
